They already are. They're recorded in /usr/local/mailman/logs/subscribe.

You need to make sure you understand why they're unsubscribed,
however. If you get unsubscribed due to excessive bounces caused by
a short-term problem at your ISP, should this prohibit you from ever
being subscribed again?
And the automatic bounce handling system of Mailman is just one of
many factors to consider.

Check the patch system on sourceforge, but I would doubt it.
The key is going to be fully and completely understanding any of the
various different reasons why a user was unsubscribed and putting
that into the database, and knowing which of those kinds of
transactions could be reversible and under what circumstances.
